Make Your Shower Tile Like New


General Information: One of the problems with tile is the buildup of soap scum. A small amount of white vinegar or lemon juice on a cloth will solve the problem.

A Poor Settlement: When grout cracks appear between the tiles it is usually casued by settlement or shrinkage and can only be fixed by removing the old grout and re-grouting.

Here Ye, Here Ye, Soap Stains Grout: Grout stains are usually caused by moisture and soap stains. Could be stopped by wiping down tile after bathing or turning on an exhaust fan.

How Loose I Am…..: If the soap dish loosens up there is no way to tighten it without removing it and re-installing it. Make sure you caulk it well !!
